Benefits of Installing a High-Speed Door

Your rolling service doors are some of the most used and most underappreciated pieces of equipment in your facility. Every business has different needs and expectations when it comes to service doors, parking garage doors, or other types of overhead doors. Some businesses need a door that fits in with a particular architectural style, some companies value security and still others require a temperature-resistant overhead door. However, another important need is the need for speed.

High-Speed Doors

A high-speed door is a great investment for many facilities. Faster opening and closing times on high-speed doors can make a facility more secure, reduce heating or cooling loss and prevent airflow, which can damage certain merchandise. In addition, when you are not stuck waiting for a slow door to open and close, you save time that you can use for other more important tasks around your property. 



Our high-speed doors offer the perfect balance between speed, high performance, durability and style.

 

Choosing the right service door for your structure is a big decision, but a high-speed door can be the ideal solution in many cases. 

When it comes to all your door needs, you are never alone.

Dock Bumpers and Their Benefits

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on May 29, 2019 7:07:00 PM

No matter if you have a low traffic dock or a bustling hub of activity, there is always the risk of damage when a truck hits the building. Not only can it cause damage to the vehicle, but in the worst cases the building could sustain serious damage as well. One of the best ways to prevent this is with dock bumpers. In fact, dock bumpers can absorb around 80% of the impact force when there is trailer impact.

Since these are such an important line of defense, it is important that you choose the right type for the job.


Types of Dock Bumpers:

- Laminated Dock Bumpers have a mid-range of wear capacity and have flexibility in thickness, length and height.

- Steel Faced Dock Bumpers have the greatest wear capabilities—up to four times the protection of a laminated bumper. You can make your decision based on how busy your dock is, or how likely it is that there would be a collision involving any type of trailer or loading dock equipment.

- Molded Dock Bumpers are the most attractive style, but they are easier to chip or gouge than other types of bumpers.

One problem that can occur in some spaces happens when the trailer height does not match up against the natural height of the bumpers on the loading dock. Here at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC, we have a solution.
